I saw this on the Thanksgiving special of Down Home With The Neelys and finally found the recipe! You can find the original on the Food Network website. But I changed it for convenience reasons. I'm guessing that 6 ears of corn would be about one 14-oz cans or a 16-oz bag of frozen corn (going by the reviews on the Food Network site); I don't have patience or time to husk those! Canola or sunflower oil would probably work fine if you're avoiding solid fats.
